Our collaboration with Lost & Found was an initiative of Petz Scholtus and Barcelona Open Green Map. This is the first tour we are doing, we are learning as we go. The tour will be led by Dunk; Irish eco architect, city tour guide, #acampadaBCN global communications activist, part founder of Barcelona en Transició.

ES_10 portadaWe plan to do the tour in 7 stages, covering 7 different but interconnected issues, each of which has been explored indepth by the publications of ES (education and sustainability) which is another project from the Barcelonya team. The issues covered this Sunday are:

Health, climate change, biodiversity, cities, food, learning 2.0, money

You can view a map here of the route we will take, we start from the red mark at the beach

Most of all though, this is a social event, because that is what is the key to changing (y)our world: Fun and enjoyment. We do this stuff because we love it, we wish to share some of our insight in the hope that more and more people choose an EASY GREEN lifestyle and with that the whole world becomes a little more fair and balanced.

So see you on Sunday, get ready for loads of FUN!!!
